Abstract: Ecotourism is an important component of tourism and consists in visiting natural areas for relaxation in nature, for psychic recovery, knowledge, appreciation of nature and its effects. Ecotourism plays a significant role in the economic development of an area or region of tourist attraction. The most important positive effects refer to the contributions in the state revenues, generated by the tourist expenses and the export and import of complementary goods for the receiving countries, and to the stimulation of investments in various sectors, thus, through the multiplier effect of the tourism contributing to the economic prosperity of the country. Ecotourism is and will be an important direction for the sustainable and economic development of Romania, our country being one of the first countries in the world where a standard for the evaluation of ecotourism destinations is applied. It is adapted according to the criteria of the World Council for Sustainable Tourism and is under the administration of the Ministry of Tourism. This article presents the new opportunities for developing and supporting ecotourism in Romania.
